Obama says the team's friendship and teamwork helped them pull off their victory. He says Keselowski is, in his words, ``a heck of a driver,'' and that those who know him aren't surprised by his success.

The president is also honoring Keselowski's efforts to give back to the community through the Race to Recovery program, which helps wounded service members and their relatives.

Keselowski's blue race car was parked on the driveway of the South Lawn of the White House for the ceremony on Tuesday. Obama joked that Keselowski offered to let him take it for a spin but that the Secret Service nixed the idea.
